Hierarchy of cultures and educational research

1. Theoreticalassumptions:

  • The Production of Scientific Knowledge

2. Empirical Studie:

  • Immigration and Inequality – Field-Specific Constructions

3. Conclusion:

  • Contextualisation of the Types of Discourse and Concluding Observations
1 theoretical assumptions the production of scientific knowledge
1. Theoreticalassumptions: The Production of Scientific Knowledge

Pierre Bourdieu/Loïc Waquant (Reflexive Anthropology):

 structural relation between researcher and object of research

internal struggles in the scientific field

Karl Mannheim (1928):

Jedes Denken ist „eingebettet und getragen von Macht und Geltungstrieb bestimmter Gruppen, die ihre Weltanschauung zur öffentlichen Weltauslegung machen wollen“.

structural imbalance between researcher and object of research
Structural Imbalance between Researcher and Object of Research

economic capital +

(institutionally secured)

symbolic capital

= cultural, economic or social capital with general recognition (e.g. Euro, university qualification, the elaborate use of the “Standard” language)

cultural symbolic capital -

immigrants

who suffer inequality

Structural Imbalance between Researcher and Object of Research

assumptions:

The production of scientific knowledge ...

.... is embedded in a objective imbalanced relation between the researcher and the research object

.... is taking part in constructing a hierarchy of cultures – ascribing the characteristics “symbolic” or “non-symbolic” capital .

slide6

Internal struggles in the scientific field

....not a homogeneous process but conflicts of power exist internal to the field:

Who is authorised to speak the truth about the social world?

assumption:

.... the power relations and power conflicts within the field lead to different approaches of ascribing the characteristics “symbolic” and “non-symbolic”.

main questions of the empirical study based on bourdieu wacquant
Main Questions of the Empirical Study based on Bourdieu/Wacquant :
  • How does the research on immigration and inequality deal with the relation between “symbolic” and “non-symbolic” cultural capital ?
  • (reproduction of the hierarchy of cultures)
  • types of discourse
  • dimensions of the construction
2 empirical studie immigration and inequality field specific constructions

3. Conclusion:

Hierarchies of cultures and educational research

tendency to reproduce the relations of domination and subordination between different forms of cultural capital.

  • * reproduction of the hierarchy of cultures
  • *Problematic!
  • legitimation of the existing power relations
  • integration as assimilation
  • correspondence to one–sided policy strategies
  •  counter-tendency: value of capital is open to more than one interpretation
